whether it's you guys or over on fox or cnn, doesn't matter. >> it does matter. >> it does matter, but if you guys know that if you cover a subject in a certain way, you're ratings will spike up. if you don't cover that subject, the ratings will go down. that discussion is had. when we did a screening in new york that you attended, there were a lot of journalists, guys in the field for decades and they said i hope to god you guys are dealing with those of us who fight the fight every day to try to hang on to the ideals of journalism. and you see it. i mean, it's not like we're trying to whitewash all cable news. we're trying to shine a light on the people that are really trying to tell the truth and get at the truth every day. >> well, that's our fight every day to get the facts straight. you don't have a corrections pages on these programs. you've got a get it right live. here's an example of aaron sorkin's brilliant dialogue. it's a scene from next week's episode. >> onions make you cry they don't experience emotion. >> the way you experience rudy. >> everybody cries at the jers
could see when he was asked about this. one cnn debate he was very slippery about it. he was frustrated about the precedent with his father giving more returns out. the strange thing about this is he's been running for president about eight years. he's been thinking about running and ran in '08 and ran this time. he's had a lot of time to fix his taxes. it's a mystery to what he was thinking. this was an obvious problem that was going to come up. but he seems not to care enough about it to fix it before now. talking about it five months before the election. >> ryan, the other part of this is media is concerned about a lot of the details in the scrutiny. but the general perception given the voters is here's a rich guy advocating for rich people to have tax cuts. who's hanging out in the hamptons jet skiing. i think overall the average voters is not going to audit their taxes if they come out. it's the overall broad perception of this 1% of for the 1% by the 1% are going into the white house. that's a big political problem. >> i think that the unpatriotic part of it is what's going to be
on cnn yesterday that these attacks are working. he admitted that. how does the romney campaign shift the narrative here, dan? >> very difficult right now to do that. i mean, they could obviously do it if they released the tax rurntion. they're reluctant to do that. they said they would put out one more set of returns in august. that's a long time between now and august. they could do it if they were much more aggressive in going back at the president, but everything they've tried, and i thought it was interesting on friday night when he did that round of interviews with tv that that just had very little impact on changing it, and all weekend what you saw was a continuation and an acceleration of the calls for him to do something. >> i agree. i think that this is a box that has been carefully crafted by the obama team. it is a very well-packaged box. i mean, there's no escape at this point that i can see short of what dan just said, putting out the tax returns and i think then getting in front of the story with the speech. we were talking about this off air. i think you're right. get
in place in massachusetts was a penalty and disagrees with the court, but on tuesday he said on cnn, our position is the same as mitt romney's position. it's a tax. yesterday from romney, the courts said it's a tax and therefore it is a tax. is there anything or anyone who is properly managing the romney message when it comes to how they feel about the supreme court ruling? it seems like they are caught flatfooted on this. >> what the situation with the desperate comments what from what they show is how dangerous an is she for the campaign. the issue is an individual mandate. what mitt romney did in 20007 and that's the issue that brought the tea party national prominence and one of the most politically charged issues to date and something he has to be careful with. now the obama campaign as we heard earlier, mitt romney doesn't stick to his guns. he is changing for political expediency and that's something you don't want to see. >> how does it not look like the tail is wagging the dog on health care? >> the challenge is the fact that the supreme court came out with the ruling that it's
the economy will improve. according to a new cnn poll, six in ten say the economy will be doing well by 2013 versus 39% who say it will be poor. those are the opposite of where the poll stood last october. we'll be right back. what makes the sleep number store different? you walk into a conventional mattress store, it's really not about you. they say, "well, if you wanted a firm bed you can lie on one of those. we provide the exact individualization that your body needs. wow, that feels really good! once you experience it, there's no going back. hurry in now for our lowest prices of the season. save $300 to $1000 on selected sleep number bed sets. final days! sale ends sunday. only at the sleep number store, where queen mattresses start at just $699. >>> governor romney said we should just let detroit go bankrupt. i refuse to turn my back on communities like this one. i was betting on the american worker. and i was betting on american industry. and three years later the americanuto industry is coming roaring back. >> welcome back to "hardball." that was president obama this afternoon kicking

's you guys or on fox or cnn. >> it does matter. >> it does matter, but you guys know that if you cover a certain subject in a certain way, your ratings are going to spike up. if you back off, your ratings are going to go down. when we did a screening in new york recently that you attended, there were a lot of journalist, a lot of producers, guys who have been in the field for decades and they said, i hope to god that you guys are dealing with those of us who fight the fight every day to try to hang on to the ideals of journalism and you see it. it's not like we're out trying to whitewash all of cable news. we're trying to shine a light on the people really trying to tell the truth and get out the truth every day. >> that's our fight every day to get out the truth because you don't have a corrections page. here's an example of aaron sorkin's brilliant dialogue. a scene from next week's episode. >> make you cry, they don't themselves experience emotion. >> the way you experience emotion when you watch rudy. >> jersey scene? >> yes. >> everybody cries at the jersey scene. jim? >> haven't
unpopular and mitt romney doesn't need that extra baggage. >> john harwood, cnn chief correspondent and wrietder for "the new york times," thank you very much. good to have you there. >> you bet. >> what john is saying about making the economic argument against mitt romney and who is the best economic talker on the democratic side, if you don't think that bill clinton is that person, the other democrat, you probably think is the best person on that is elizabeth warren. we found out today that on the same night that bill clinton is going to be addressing the dnc, so, too, is massachusetts senate candidate elizabeth warren. the democrats seem focused on this economy thing. all right, we've got a best new thing in the world coming up. it's about a bronze medal. but it's a best new thing. how could that be? stay with us. [ male announcer ] we got a real mom and the family car to do an experiment. we put a week of her family's smelly stuff all in at once to prove that febreze car vent clips could eliminate the odor. then we brought her family to our test facility to see if it worked. [ w
of the rnc bungled a response on cnn this morning. >> president romney per fernstrom, what is the rnc's position on this? >> the same as mitt romney's position is, tit's a tax, that' the only way the supreme court came up with the decision it did. >> one of the ramifications i think is that americans are walking around saying the supreme court confirmed its attacks and people who won't be suggest to an increase are thinking i'm getting taxed to pay for obamacare. >> there is that element of confusion that exists out there you're talking about a small percentage of the people, those who not comply with the law. but the broader population believes it applies to them. which is why what was said yesterday on the program was kind of a gaffe because it then flips the script and all of a sudden now you have romney saying it's a penalty, we agree with the president and that gives the president a wider swath to make the argument about his health care plan. >> thank you for being here. coming up, congressman joe walsh is is at it again. the man who told president obama to quote stop lying. now
, he told cnn this yesterday about those remarks. >> this wasn't a slip up. i don't regret anything i said. >> here to respond to her opponent is tammy duckworth who continues to serve in the illinois national guard following the loss of both her legs when her helicopter was hit in iraq in 2004. if i were to see you on the campaign trail, at an event, as part of your pitch or speech about your candidacy, how much would i hear you talking about your military service versus your platform and that which you're looking forward to doing? >> i actually start all of my discussions with constituents about you all know about my military service, but let me tell you about the time my family was on food stamps and how my dad lost his job and how important it it is for us to focus on our economy right now. if i talk about health care, for example, the fact is my wounds give me an insight into the need for good health care because my family would be bankrupt had i been in just a car accident. there's no way we could have afforded my health bills. >> you lay out your position on at least ten differ
of this campaign. >> one other thing i wanted to bring up about health care is according to the new cnn poll, by 50-49, people agree with the supreme court decision so the country is evenly split which is basically a blank slate that either side can try to bring to bear. >> it's a cliche, but i think this issue was so thoroughly litigated in the court of public opinion two years ago that it's all sorted out. i think the president, it's factored into the stock price against the president. i think what the supreme court was going to decide wasn't going to make a whole lot of difference to most voters. they already formed opinions on health care. >> mitt romney and ann romney, when you talked about trying to flesh out who is this guy and does he share your values, mitt romney and ann romney jet skiing, i assume in new hampshire, so you can see that probably the best thing that he's got going for him is ann romney, who is out on the cover of "usa today" today talking about her struggle against m.s. and she's going to be writing a book, she says, about that. not about politics but about her health issu
hebs duckworth is a hero. he told cnn crede. >> this wasn't a slip up. >> here to respond the tammy duckworth, who continues to serve following the loss of both her legs when her helicopter was hit in iraq in 2004. if i were to see you on the campaign trail, at an event, as part of your pitch or speech about your candidacy, how much woul i hear your talking about your mitary service versus your platform? >> i actually start all of my discussions about you all know about my military service, but let me tell you about the time my family was on food stamps and my dad lost his job and how important it is for us to focus on the economy right now. you'll hear me talk about my military service in certain ways if i talk about health my woun an insight to the need for good health care. because my family would be bankrupt if i had just been in an accident. >> i can attest to the fact on your website there is a platform. you lay out your position on ten different issues. there's a jobs plan as well. the criticism he offers is this is the only thing you discuss on the campaign trail. you're he
. >> finally, a different take from jason chaffits. he was asked on cnn whether off romney should release more years of his returns and he said this. >> i think he has released a tax returns. >> more of them. >> shouldn't -- >> no, i don't. >> why not? why shouldn't the american people see those? >> he's been very successful. he released everything that he is required to release including paying more than 16% of his income to charitable giving. i think it is the diversionary tactic. most people don't care about this. governor romney has been very successful. get over it. it is a reality. >> do most people care about this issue? >> well, i don't think they care about this specific issue obsessively, but as you said and what michael said, if you put the secrecy of most of his financial transactions next to concerns about outsourcing and offshoring that the democrats have been poking around at next to their efforts of trying to paint mitt romney into a corner on defending tax cuts for the wealthiest americans and if you sort of put the aura of secrecy around the whole thing, then i think you rais
